There are several routes but the most popular is the waterfalls hike. There are at least two of them. The first will take 30-45 minutes and the other one about 1h. There is a longer route which people sleeps overnight. The scenery is breathtaking and...More

This Nature Reserve is very impressive with majestic vistas around every corner. The entrance to the park is ZAR 40 which was reasonable. You drive into the Reserve but be mindful that the road is very rocky and you need to have a reasonable car...More

It is a lovely hike to the two waterfalls--there are many more routes and this one I chose as I had only a couple of hours to spend. It's an one-hour hike to the second waterfall, half an one to the first one. Please bring...More

The reserve is beautiful and offers excellent hiking trails. Fresh mountain water along the way to drink. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking. Four hiking routes to choose from. And it is safe to hike inside the reserve. Entrance fee is R40 per person.

Wonderful reserve close to town, but feels like a really remote mountain valley. Walking, driving, jogging, biking all possible and a lovely cafe at the gate to recover!

Had an early morning hike in this beautiful reserve. The views were spectacular! The first section of the hike to the first waterfall was relatively easy the extended strip to the second waterfall was far tougher though. The second waterfall is however worth the more...More

I've been there a number of times but never encountered this - might be an issue around holidays I suppose. But people arrive and leave all the time anyway.
